PostgreSQL is an innovative relational database control system, that you can use on a number of platforms (UNIX, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenSolaris, Windows) and with many different scripting languages (Perl, PHP, Python, Java, Ruby). Because it is open-source, it could be freely modified to suit the needs of any developer who works with it. PostgreSQL is also amongst the the most dependable and secure database systems, with significantly better efficiency in handling complex operations when compared with similar systems. It is well suited for large-scale applications due to the fact that a single PostgreSQL database does not have a limit for the size, while one table could be up to 32 Gigabytes. It is not a surprise that a lot of business, educational and government entities are already using PostgreSQL - Skype, the University of California, Berkeley and the US Department of Labor being only a couple of examples.
PostgreSQL 8.3 Databases in Shared Web Hosting
You could use applications that require PostgreSQL databases with each and every Linux shared web hosting package we provide. The number of databases you can have at a time varies and with some plans you'll have to buy an additional upgrade, while with others the amount is between five and unlimited as standard. In case you ever need more databases than the package you've selected comes with, you could upgrade this feature through the Upgrades section of your Control Panel. Provided you have a free slot, you could create a new PostgreSQL database with a few clicks in the Databases section of your account and from the same location you may also access phpPgAdmin - a feature-rich software tool that will offer you total control over all your databases and it'll enable you to export or import a whole database or only a part of it easily.
